Anyone who thinks Karlsson is the shits defensively doesn't watch many Ottawa games. He is no stud in his own end but he is no slouch either. He is a very smart player who has a good stick and his defensive coverage has improved leaps and bounds from his rookie season. Karlsson was very deserving of the Norris.
I still think that Weber brings more to the table all around then Karlsson does at this time.
It's just a tragedy that the sports writers focus primarily on offense, it's like they don't quite get all the aspects of the game.....imagine that eh.
Even the Vezina, Lundqvist deserves a Vezina, no question, but I look at this season and I see Quick with better numbers in more games played, and then factor in that the Kings couldn't score their way out of a paper bag until the playoffs started (29th in the league in GF with a differential of +15), and then look and see that the Rangers were 11th with a differential of +39, and I gotta say, Quick made a bigger difference for his team. I suppose he'll have to be content with the Conn Smythe.
